2019-20 Registration is now open!!

NY City has a BIG year ahead!

Whether you are new to the Science Olympiad (aka SciOly) or are a "veteran" of many years of competing, this is going to be a great year! We have many exciting changes taking place, for instance:


  • Division A -  Division A - NY City is going to be holding its first A Division Open House for the younger siblings of B Division participants.  Division A is the Science Olympiad Division for Elementary School Students.  The little ones are really going to love those these events AND it will give them something positive to do while their older siblings are doing their competitions.  Look to the Downloads section for examples of some Division A events. 
  • 23 Events! I have heard you and we are running all 23 events! It is going to be a bit more "involved" so we will need as many extra hands on deck as you can bring!
  • Trials Events: Duct Tape Challenge & Science Tech Bowl!! Two favorites!


Get ready and fasten your seat belts! 2020 is going to be lots of fun!

About Us

The Science Olympiad

The Science Olympiad (SciOly) is a National Competition encompassing true inquiry events.  Students are involved not only in the academic fields of biology, chemistry, physics and earth science, but also in the technology behind them.  They build vehicles, bridges, roller coasters and more - and in the process learn about the science behind them.  They learn how to work with a team.  Students are rewarded for their academics, teamwork, and practice in this true STEM competition.
